Three Blurbs, Plus A Look At Canadian Olympic Rosters Part II & IIIShareThis
I thought I’d chuck out some vague, teaser-style sentences about what’s been taking up some of my time lately:
I’m working on a TV show with a couple producers – guys that’ve made more good movies than I’ve even seen. Of course, if it doesn’t get bought, I (and they) make no money. So, it’s a gamble, but it’s a fun gamble. Like my pre-NFL season bet on the Jets to win the Superbowl. REALLY, MGM, ONLY 22-1 ODDS FOR THIS SHIT? Ridiculous.
(Much) More info to come in the future.
So, I was made aware via Twitter (thanks to follower @mdamore4), of the following comment on Chris Botta’s highly read Islander blog “Islanders Point Blank”, written by the cleverly-named “orgaNYIzation”:
Cant wait for Gillie’s daughter and Bourne’s son to bear a son (and may he be a masculine son). If that kid get’s Clark’s size and toughness and Bobby’s speed and stickhandling ability..look out. Can we use a #6 this June and draft the future Bourne?
I’m not sure if the bulk of my new followers are aware, but early (early) on in my writing days, I made this proposal to Islanders owner Charles Wang. I’m baffled I didn’t receive some response (like “Haha, beat it kid”?), but the offer still stands…. Help pay for what can be a well-publicized, orange and blue wedding, and we’ll promise the Islanders the rights to our first born male. Or female, if the girl gets all Hayley-Wickenheiser-times-two up in this biatch.
Next on my list is a hilarious website courtesy a couple of my high school buddies called “How Many Beers?” It’s a pretty simple concept – a picture is shown, and commentors answer the age-old dudes-on-a-couch question…. “How many beers?” If you don’t get what HMB refers to, don’t go to the website. If you do, you’re liable to get a few laughs.
I was the item for discussion yesterday under the heading “Something for the ladies…” – Again, and less subtley, it’s not a PG site, so those of you who read my site for kitten pics, maybe stay away. Or go here. The rest of you, Check it out.
I played hockey with a guy named Josh Ciocco – He’s an American guy from New Jersey, who captained the University of New Hampshire hockey team, and is now some sort of sports agent. He wrote me with what I thought was a really good point:
Occasionally you’ll hear someone say “other countries are catching up to Canada in hockey”, or something of that ilk – his point (one a few other people have made), is that simply, no, not quite. Whether the top Russians or top Americans go on to beat our top Canadians at the Olympics or not, how would a second Russian team look? Or American? It falls off pretty steep after the top tier.
Canada is so deep, he went ahead and made the list of what our second team would look like, and it’d be a medal contender for sure. The fun part, is that he made the third team too (by the way, the point is to demonstrate depth, not argue about who would be on which roster).
“For whatever reason, I like Canada’s team, but I dont love it. I actually really like the US simply because of Miller. Canada does have the best roster though, and it got me thinking, Canada would also have the second best roster. I mean seriously….”
TEAM NUMBER TWO
Martin St. Louis
“And because im bored and in class… If this was any other country, people would say they would be in medal contention – I present Canada’s third team.. (a little light in the pipes)”
